Synopsis: Kelly Meding’s war-ravaged Los Angeles is ground zero for the ultimate Meta human showdown in this sexy, action-packed new series.
Fifteen years ago, Teresa “Trance” West was a skilled telepath and a proud member of the Ranger Corps. But ever since the Rangers were inexplicably rendered powerless at the climax of the devastating Meta War, she’s bounced from one dead-end job to another. Now her powers have reappeared just as mysteriously as they vanished— only they’re completely transformed and more potent than ever. And they’re threatening to destroy her.
Trance heads to Los Angeles to track down the surviving Rangers and discover who restored her powers—and why—but a phantom enemy is determined to kill them before they can reassemble. As they dodge his deadly attacks and come to terms with their new role as heroes, Trance and the rest of the team set out to annihilate the sinister madman . . . only to discover their own powers are his greatest weapons.
Review: Teresa West has been living an ordinary and boring existence ever since the powers of the Metas were brutally snatched away with no explanation to be found. Now she's working three jobs just to make ends meet and she's still coming up short. Then after one very stressful night, she goes home and is hit with sudden pain. She realizes she has her powers back, but different than before...but is she the only one? She goes off to find the other members of her old team and as they gather, someone else is trying to kill them.
Trance is a great book for everyone who grew up loving superhero comic books or movies. It was even better than reading an X-Men trade or watching a superhero movie and the time/effort put into this book really shows in the depth of the characters and the world they live in. I was very surprised by the ending (which I was happy about) and I can't wait for the next book!! Trance is awesome!!!
